We enjoyed the show debate at 6 PM on Friday. Teams from Yale, Northwest, Simon Fraser and Seattle University competed. The motion was: We should fear the rise of intelligent robots. The audience voted for the government. The judges voted for Seattle University.
Motions for our tournament on Friday and Saturday:
Round one: TH Must learn to live with a nuclear Iran.
Round two: THBT Barack Obama does not deserve a second term.
Round three: THW mandate equal primetime coverage for men's and women's sports
Round four: TH welcomes the rise of Chinese power.
Final Round -- final teams could strike one topic each. The final motion accepted was: THW use genetic engineering to re-design human nature.
Possible final round topics:
Assuming that the technology to predict crime to a very high probability exists, THW use it to preemptively arrest individuals for their potential involvement.
THW ban time travel.
THBT humanity should immediately begin colonizing the planet Mars.
THBT the United Nations should ban speech that denigrates religion.
THW use genetic engineering to re-design human nature.
